New Cover! New Excerpt!

Here's the cover for my next book, HIGHLAND HEIRESS, which is an April release from Harlequin Historicals (which means it'll be on the shelves at the end of March).

This is the back cover blurb (which I really like - it gives enough information to make it interesting without revealing too much!):

Breaking The Law!

No sooner does wealthy heiress Lady Moira MacMurdaugh breathe a sigh of relief for avoiding a disastrous marriage to a gambling womanizer than she is served with a lawsuit!

Torn between duty and this impulsive beauty who stirs him to distraction, solicitor Gordon McHeath has no choice but to go up against the woman whose kiss he’s never forgotten. Until sinister forces threaten to upend Lady Moira’s world and Gordon
must cast the law book aside!

I've also added an excerpt on my website.

If you've read HIGHLAND ROGUE, LONDON MISS, Gordon's name might be familiar. If you haven't, don't worry - I always write books assuming nobody has read any of the prequels.

I can also now reveal where my son is going and why. He's moving to Seattle to work for...Amazon! On the Kindle! Appropriate or what? I just wish it wasn't so far away.

The Family Drama continues

so unfortunately, despite my best intentions, I've been too distracted to think about blogging, or do much writing (except for necessary emails). I did manage to get lots of walking in, because that doesn't require any concentration.

This week, though, I simply must get back on track work-wise, although there are still medical issues to be resolved.

I will be tweeting from time to time, because they're short and quick, but I can't say when I'll be blogging again. I simply don't have a lot of time, and working on the gig that helps to pay the bills must take precedence.

New Year off to quite the start....

I hope you all had a lovely holiday. For me, the excitement began when we got home from the cottage to learn that one of my children is moving across the continent. Great opportunity for him, probably should have taken down the tree before we left rather than the day after getting that news.

The next night we had a family crisis with an elderly parent. All is well for now, thankfully, but nobody wants to get that kind of 3 a.m. wake-up call.

So, that was the first three days of 2011 for me. I'm almost afraid to wonder what the rest of the year might bring!
